I am 67 years old and working part time. I have recently stopped producing semen. I haven't had this happen before. There hasn't been as much semen produced lately but never stopped.

Thanks for using Just Answer. I am Dr. SS. I will try my best to help you. When did the symptom start? Do you have any other symptom? Did you consult doctor or have any test?

Best regards.

I have taken several physicals in the last 6 mos including blood work. I had shown a slightly higher glucose level and a lower HDL level. I rec'd some instructions to deal with this by taking vitamin E and using cinamen (1/2 teaspoon) on my morning ceral, which I have. I have not asked anyone other than yourself about this as I have not encountered this before. My wife and I don''t have sex a lot but do try once a week. We have been married for 47 years and her urges are not as mine.

Thank you for the input.

Low serum volume can occur with aging. This can be due to low testosterone level. Sometimes, there can be retrograde flow of semen. This can occur when there is any obstruction to semen flow or if there is backward flow. Prostate enlargement can be there. I would advise to have an examination by an urologist. He can take an examination of prostate, ultrasound, blood, urine tests.
